One Week After Laser Hair Removal Session #4

Tuesday, August 5th, 2008

Hey everybody! Another week another post! It’s a little weird for me to be doing these posts on Mondays now after being so used to doing them (or trying to) every Thursday for the past 6 months. I was starting to get pretty used to it.

So it’s been a week since my fourth laser hair removal session in New York City at Romeo and Juliette Laser Hair Removal. Things have been going pretty well but there were a few things I noticed in the past week that have never happend before. First off, I noticed that my skin looked a little bruised in some areas! Could it be from the higher laser settings? It’s possible. This was mainly happening on my legs, but I noticed my arms were a little red for a bit longer than usual. I also noticed that a few of my small moles, that got lasers in the process, are a bit darker. I’ve noticed this before but then they seemed to fade back after a few days. We’ll, it’s been a week now and they’re still pretty dark brown/black. Oh well. Not really a big deal. Remember in the past when I thought my legs were losing color? Well, that cleared itself up, so I guess I just need to give everything some time.

As far as the hair is concerned, I’m still waiting to shed. I’m seeing little hairs, that look like stubble, popping up everywhere. Nothing out of the ordinary. I’m just really focusing on my upper arms right now and hoping that they shed fine, and that the hair doesn’t grow back super quickly! I really need to get these upper arm hairs taken care of and I think they’ve become my biggest concern, now that my arm and leg hair is thinning out!

This upcoming week is going to be very interesting. I’m headed to Las Vegas for a week and was planning on hanging out at the pools as I always do. However, since I just had this laser hair removal session a week ago, I’m a little concerned. I’ve always been told to stay the hell out of the sun after each session! So I’m not sure what’s going to happen…I’m planning on packing some SPF-40 or SPF-50 sunscreen and putting that on pretty heavily and frequently. I hope that does the trick. We’ll see.

I’ll post pictures of my current hair growth in the next day or so before I leave for Vegas!

Two Weeks After Laser Hair Removal Session #3

Thursday, May 22nd, 2008

Sorry for the lack of an update last week. I’ve been trying to take pictures every week but I’ve been having a hard time with my digital camera and lighting. The one’s from last week sucked so it wasn’t even worth posting them. My photos don’t want to turn out as sharp and focused as they did when I was in Florida. I guess I had much better lighting in the bathrooms.

Anyways, I sent out some press releases about the site last week, trying to get more visitors this way. The more people I can reach through this blog, the better! I really hope some people are finding this site useful or will in the future!

So it’s been two weeks now since my third laser hair removal session in New York City. Actually it’s been 15 days but close enough. Since the third session I’ve decided that I want to see how long I can go without shaving to see how everything is going! So it’s been 15 days and I haven’t shaved any of the treated areas. That’s almost a record. After the first session I went about 16 without shaving and then it got to the point that things were looking sloppy and things were getting very prickly. So far that hasn’t been the case though! Things are starting to look good and I’ve been shedding and I haven’t noticed much hair regrowth at this point! I know it’s only been about two weeks, but it’s looking like the hairs that are coming back may finally be starting to get thinner, shorter and lighter. However, this may only be the case in SOME areas….

What do I mean by that? Well, I’m really not sure what the heck is going on with my body right now, but all of a sudden I have tons of hairs on my shoulders! Also, hairs are coming in on my upper arms where there weren’t any hairs before. The first time I noticed the hairs on my shoulder I freaked out! Now I have one more area that I definitely need to get taken care of. But here’s the thing. I’m not sure if these hairs just randomly showed up after my third laser hair removal session by chance or if the lasers somehow “stimulated” these areas and actually caused the hair growth. I briefly read something about this on a laser hair removal forum but didn’t pay much attention at the time because it didn’t apply to me. So I think it’s time to hit the laser hair removal forums and also consult with Chris at Romeo and Juliette in NYC and see why this happened. I’m definitely going to start having my shoulders treated now because it looks very awkward having hair as shoulder pads now! 😉

In all fairness, I’ve been getting the random hairs around my shoulders and around my upper back for some time now, so these patches of hairs were probably destined to happen sooner or later. But it’s time to get them taken care of now, along with the random neck hairs I’ve been getting creeping up above the neck of my t-shirts!

So with all this being said I think things are starting to progress as I always hoped they would. Being able to say that really excites me and makes me feel really good about this whole process and all the money that I’ve put into it! With that being said, I’ll leave you with some pictures I just took, 15 days after my third laser hair removal treatment in New York City!

Photos coming soon….hopefully…
